Re: Only In Black? Why?
I'd be very surprised if Ibanez was cranking out 1570CA's of they were neck deep in old stock. That just doesn't make sense. Honestly, IMO, you got a better guitar in the '08 with an Edge Pro.
As far as dealers go I remember having a conversation with a guy at Scam Ash in 2007 when I had debit card *in hand* to buy an RG1570MRR. I had just had an e-mail conversation with Jay at Ibanez who had told me the MRR wasn't being discontinued but here the Scam Ash employee was telling me they were. He even called HUSA (allegedly) and his own warehouse to verify they were discontinued. No sale! I went to MF and bought it there.
In all fairness the MRR was discontinued... the following year.
In the end, though, I should have bought it from Rich. Live and learn.
